With PCRE versions 10.37 and below PHP 8.1 build breaks when preg_match is called with the warning

PHP Warning:  PHP Startup: ^(text/|application/xhtml\+xml) (offset=0): unrecognised compile-time option bit(s) in Unknown on line 0

Actual result:
PHP 8.1 should work with PCRE versions 10.37 and below

PHP 8.1 currently ships with a bundled PCRE 10.37, so that version clearly seems to work?
